This work, created by the Daum crystal works, was broken and had lost fragments of crystal.
The piece was first of all ground down so that the two parts could be rejoined. Then, two gilded bronze corner pieces were inserted between the two parts to cover the gap and to stabilise the two sections.
This piece was displaying a very large chip out of the centre of one side.
A simple milling operation was not enough to restore it. So Franck Bénito suggested that once the chip was milled he create two “pontis” in clear crystal symmetrically on either side of the piece perfectly disguising the original damage and also in sympathy with the original object.
This work, created by the Daum crystal works. Shards importantly on the top of the vase, and a part of the decor (bamboo) missing.
Reconstitution broken and missing parts and work on the other side to balancing of the entire vessel.
